Idaho Turkey Feeding Creates Problems

Sounds like typical Sun Valley Idaho clucks! Trying to make every animal on God's green earth their pet and forgetting that nature can take care of itself. I really don't feel sorry for the land owner who can't even keep a turkey off of their car, gee, wish I had that problem during turkey season

So, you're sayin' you can just walk up to within 40-50 yds of a "wild" turkey and shoot him with legal means and that turkey will let you get away with it? WOW!!!!!!!!

Idaho Turkey Feeding Creates Problems

2 nighs ago i was in my shop. I walked outside and 6 hens and a tom where getting ready to roost off of my driveway. They where about 40 yards away. I had my pickup between me and them. I sat there and watched the 6 hens fly into the trees for the night. I made a couple of sounds and the tom walks to about 20 yards away from me, turns and takes a shit. I didn't know whether to be pissed or impressed. This morning 25 yards from my kitchen table the tom is all spread out strutting. last week i watched a tom chaise a hen around another tom. All within 25 yards of my kitchen table. I will also say i border natl forest in north idaho and we where watching turkeys, whitetail and elk last night from our deck.

so yea without feeding them i can get that close and shoot. They live on my property. I have been thinking a .22 pistol to the head at 10 feet would be good. lol
